YMMV: Night Shift
  • Nausea Fuel: In Gray Matter, we have the charming tale of a man who is transformed into a fungoid blob caused by a bit of gray slimy guck-infesting one of his nightly cans of beer. Later, we hear his son's story of seeing what's become of his father eating the bloated, putrefying, maggot-ridden corpse of a cat.
    • In The Lawnmower Man, the title character's self-driving machine runs over a mole (an analogue of an earlier scene where the same thing happens to a cat, albeit with a different mower). The man, following close behind, eats the body of the mole just as he has been eating the expelled grass clippings.
    • The Mangler — imagining a person crushed and folded by an industrial laundry's steam ironer (and having their remains taken out in a basket) is enough to make someone ill.
  • Squick: Several of the stories, but especially The Lawnmower Man.
  • Tear Jerker: The Last Rung on the Ladder, and The Woman in the Room.
